Grandma Hystad’s Recipes, Bar Mixes, Tips, and Warnings

















The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has issued a public warning
urging not to drink “Bolthouse Farms Carrot juice”, “Earthbound Farms
Organic Carrot Juice” and “ President’s Choice Organics Pure Carrot
Juice” due to serious botulism concerns. Warning issued October 11, 2006.


Americans could see lower home heating bills this winter with milder-
then-normal temperatures expected from the West to Northeast, weather
forecasters said October 10, 2006

It seems you hear every other day (more so seniors), who are taken in by
a scammer, fraud artist.

If you are a senior copy and paste this warning in your kitchen or near
your phone, so you can not get caught off-guard. Remember if
you get a e mail (or snail mail), phone call claiming you won a prize
or lotto. You will never be questioned to pay in order to get it.

Never pay out any money for clearing fees, taxes, or anything they come
up with. If they question you for money trust me it’s a scam.

If you get a phone call claiming to be from your bank, never give out
account, pin number. A bank will never question you for this information via
e mail or phone.

If you get a phone call, claiming to be a inspector from your bank and
asking for your help in catching a dishonest teller, manager, or what ever.
He will question you to withdraw your account, have the teller place the money
in a envelope and meet him outside the bank. If you can play along with
him, including a meeting with him, then as soon as you get off the phone,
call the police with the information.

Another scam has been making the rounds with excellent results for the scammer.
It’s a official looking document, from the Tax Department. It states if your are
married, you have to fill in your maiden name, SSN, bank account, are you
employed etc. To add insult to injury, you are required to pay a
registration fee.

If you were a small leery, and checked the email address to click to
return the form, it is the email address for the tax department. But,
if you click on the link in the document it’s redirected to a off shore
country.If you typed in the e mail address, same as the click, it would
land up in the tax department.

Any time you are sending valuable papers, money, you should always type
in the URL yourself. Don’t be another victim of a scammer
